About Goodstart Heatley Fulham Road
Goodstart Early Learning Heatley Fulham Road is a brand new, purpose-built early learning centre designed for children from 6 weeks to 5 years and includes an accredited* Kindergarten program offered within long day care hours.
Previously located in Tyler Street, Heatley, our team and Centre Director, Karen Sewell are excited to move our existing families and educators to a new location in Fulham Road, Heatley.
The educators at Goodstart Heatley Fulham Road work closely together as a team and are caring, friendly, qualified and will always put the care and education of our children above all else.
Our learning spaces, from Nursery to Kindergarten are aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Naturally inspired and calming surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.
Our architecturally designed outdoor play space features an outdoor stage, digging pits, sand pits, play and bike tracks, wooden bridge , dry creek beds, digging patch, sandpits, mud kitchen, shady tree tunnel, fruit & vegetable gardens and lots of free space. We are also have our own pets - chickens, fish and Tweet the budgie.
Community is also important to us and we invite local community members to visit to the centre and participate in events and activities throughout the year to enrich our children’s learning experience. Art and music are on offer on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity. Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family nights and emailed newsletters, enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication. This also means we can tailor each program to the child’s individual needs, interests and strengths – as well as the strong level of cultural diversity in our centre.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Karen Sewell Centre Director
Hello and welcome! My name is Karen and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Heatley Fulham Road (previously located at Taylor Street, Heatley)
I have been in the early learning sector since 1988 and I have a Diploma in Children's Services. I have had the opportunity to work with all age groups and I have worked as the centre's 2IC and educational leader for a number of years.
I love what I do!
I believe in providing children with a warm, engaging environment that provides them with opportunities to be involved in their own fun and learning.
I feel privileged every day to be part of families’ lives and for the opportunity to be involved and watch children grow and thrive as they start on their own journeys.
Every single child is unique, important and an individual in their own right. It is a view I share with my wonderful team - all of whom are expereinced, qualified and committed to providing the highest quality in care and early education.
Drop in and say hello! We would love to make you and your family welcome and the centre and discuss how we can start your child on a journey of lifelong learning.
